MOHOPOLY IH HEW EHQLAND. Hpk' Tho Boston and Maine Hailroad bill, with a BJkv trong taint of corruption, passed the Now BM' Hampshire Legislature yesterday. This iB BBi; only one of many steps in the aggrandizing BJBr ,, Bhemes of said corporation. BBW Thno was when the railroads of BNew BB Xnglond' formed a sort of democracy. They BB wera admirably managed, and there was a BBr' .jicalthy.degTce of competition. But a decided Bflpt change has passed of late over tho aspect of BC affairs. It is a great game now between the BlRL Boston and Jlfiino, tho Boston and Albany BJkT nd the Old Colony companies. Competing wl' luifca have been gobbled up and indepondont BBf broaches and connections absorbed in all BJw directions. In several of tho Btates tho cor- BJE porations virtually own the Legislature. BBf New England is gotting a taste of railroad BK' monopoly, and she does not like the flavor. BS AT IT AOAIH. BKij Tho persistent advocates of woman suffrage BK&' are determined not to lose a chance of push. BBE-" ing their cause. Several of them went to Bp- tho place of registration Tuesday and de. BBi' monded that their names bo placed on the BJBf Unt of voters. Some of these aspirants to tho K honor of voting were young and attractive. m Baif the Inspectors were obdurate. BjEi " Ap I a convict or a folon ?" asked one H ' fair suffragist. Tho reply was, of course, a Kffe negative. "Am I an American citizen?" Bfjf'., The reply was affirmative. But tho request ESty for registration that followed was denied. Buk Yet there are some sound lawyers who hold Bflr that Ihere is nothing in Uio Constitution that JR denies an American citizen the right to vole 9Brr on the ground of sex. And there are good BBfe, citizens who think that women voters would HBk? be likely to exerclso tho right of franchise at BBter least hs honestly and intelligently as men. Bl:, A WISE FOIJOY.

AritAID OF TilE LIQHT. A prominent refiner said this morning that undue publicity had embarrassed tho plans of tho proposed gigantic sugnr trust. This js a bit of unconscious confeosion. Of course tho scheme will work hotter in tho dark. Thai, is a. characteristic of tho monop olistic species. But legitimate business prospors by pul. licity. Healthy plants flourish in tho mn. It's. a pity that ihp light was not tuinxxl on early -enough to blight tho scheme. THE LATE8T JAWfl BEHBATIOHv Tho wrest of Gen. .Boulanoeb conplicate tbo situation in Franco. lie aparontly avails himself of overy opportunity to pro. voko tho hostility of tho Government. Ho takes advantago of the Captabe u scandal to boost himself again into tho rango of tho public eye. His criticism of 'Gen. I'dinoN, tho Minister of War, wan corininly nuproco. dented and a breach of military discipline. But ho will glodly poso as n Tnortyr. Tho abid clement of Paris isl inspired by snch dpcctaolcs. As to Gon. CAypAnuL, c tondomnatlon and punishment 'for his dishono r&blo traffio in tho decorations of tho Legion of .''Honor havo como swift and severe. Ho is illsgraced forever. Ho will be forced into permanent cxilo. Tho scandal is certainly l pout discreditable to the War Department of JPrance. But tho promptness of tho invoetigation and tho celerity of tho prosooution is commendable. Such vigorous mcosnree a:atnst corruption aro worthy of imitation. Mcanwhilo, tho Gcrinanq aro enjoying tho sensation quite as much, as- tho Parisians. TEINITf8 IUPOBTBD EEOTOB, The doughty Mr. Kmmssr, rrestdout of tho St. Andrew's Society, avows that ho will iiovcr rest content until lio upsets the law prohibiting tho importation of contract labor. A poor Scotsman rpcemtly camo under tho law, and was duly shipped, back to tho bind of mist and heather. Mn. Kennedy thinks that tho law cquully applies to the Itov. E. Wallpolb Wabiibn, tho imtorted rector of Trinity Church. The mutter seems to turn on whether tho pastor is a laborer. Now, if the Bov. E. Wallpole Warren 1h a .good rootor, ho Is cor. tainly a laborer with an armudauce of work to do. Anion,1? olhor things ho should labor to roform tho liarsh method of treating poor tenants sometimes adopted by tho agonts of tho Trinity corporation. But if bo 1b not n laborer, then ho is a man of leisure, and not a good rootor. Mr, Kenxuody seems to have clinched his arguunont on both sides. A suit will bo brought against tha Trinity Corporation, and tho penalty of $1,000 will probably have to bo paid. At all events, it 111 do no harm to diseowrage the importa. tion of clergymen. Wo luuve plenty of good material of our own. The Ohio Democrats cry for Gov. Hill. But why V They elected Gov.

Thoy ought to win caily in tho year before the Presidential election of 18S3 with an Administration platform and the Federal patronage to help them. Mr. Shevitch soys that the Progiessivo Labor party thinks of advertising for six smurt young lawyers to tako its judicial nominations. Tho membership of tho party has probably been exhau-stod on tho other section of tho ticket.

The Evening Wobld Is a new paper Issued from the offlco of the New York Would, and Is an after noon edition of that Journal.

A'awf. A very healthy babe was born In the newspaper world tn New York this week, It being an evening edition of the New York Wobld, price l cent, which first appeared night .before last, getting a circulation that day of over 111,400 copies. Last night Its Issue ran up to 115,630. Buch great success at the first Jump Is all the more wonderful when It Is known that New York was well supplied with penny evening papers be fore that, but It does seem that Tub Would, un der Its present proprietorship, la capablo of any accomplishment. And lung may It be I . Vom rA Dotton Jlirtkli. Tne new Evikino Would of New York city con tains a large amount of entertaining news, pre sented In a highly attractive manner. Until quite recently the evening field has been one which Now York Journalists have looked upon as hardly worth cultivating ; that la to say, the great newspapers have been all morning papers, and the newspapers Issued In the afternoon have had but a relatively small circulation. Tho enormous circulation In stantly gained by tho Would may be due to the fact that previous efforts by New York Journalists to build up the circulation of an evening paper have not been properly directed, and that there la an immense field there that has been for a long time waiting for the proper cultivator. tVom rb-2ay'f I Proarw Ilalo-Amrrtcano, When Mr. Joseph Pulitzer proprietor and editor of Tub WORLD-on tho 10th of May, 1683, bought that Journal from WUIlam U. Uurlbert, a a representative of a society of capl tallsts, Its circulation only reached zT,!)3 copies. From 1888 to 18ST (that Is In four years and a few months) the 2"M copies had grown with marvel ous and amazing geometrical progression to 310,000 of a dally edition, not to mention the speulal Bun day edition, which reaches 0,000. Many causes contributed to this success the llghtntng-like quickness tn gathering news, brill iant reporting of events, telegrams, an extraor dinary quantity of reading matter, battles fought lu the name of tho people and of public morals against Aldermen, the kings of finance, business, Ac all of which battles were won, the culprits for the most part landing In Sing 81ifS; good business management, and the constant aspiration gained and maintained, to serve and battle for the peoplo with earnest sincerity. And all this la owing to the tact, shrewdness and daring enterprise of Mr. Pulitzer, whose Iron will trans fuses Itself Into every part of his glgantlo enter prise, from the managing editor to the office-boy, all of whom are most liberally paid, but at the same time subjected to military discipline. In short, Tub Would Is a financial and political power such as has rarely been known In Journal, isui. And now Mr. 1 ulltzer, not satisfied with tho morning Wokld, has Issued an Evbnino World, which, Judgluc from Its success on the first day. w ill w Ithout effort bo u worthy offspring of tho mornlug edltlrm, and will easily eclipse its evening contemporaries. Tha first number appeared on Monday and reached a circulation of 111,410 copies.

For Procuring Cheap Ticket Outside the Conblniitlon for Two Arnb Mrs. flan. wr'i Arnt Is Denied the Privileges of the Garden An Unavailing; Anneal to the C'ommlMloner of Ummlsralloit. The Castlo Garden Committee of tho Eml. gration Commission hold a closed meeting on Thursday afternoon, at which matters only of rontino importance, it was said, wuro dis cussed. Mrs. Carolino Gasscr, who keeps tho Hotel Ruth, at 18 Greenwich Btrcot, ap peared before tho Commissioners and in a very pathetic mnnncr implored them to rcmovo tho embargo which thoy four weeks ago placed upon her house. Vainly sho has tried during all these weeks to havo her difficulties with tho Commission ers settled amicably, but at last, seeing that her business and livlihood wero boing mali ciously tor away from her, sho humiliated herself and made her appeal in person to tho Commissioners. They, however, remained obstinate, and refused to rescind their order denying her agent admission to Castlo Garden. Four weeks ago two Arabs arrived at Castlo Garden. Thoy wore destined for Omaha, Neb., and not having sufficient money to pay their railroad faro over tho pool lines, they wero cast asido by this grasping and illegal combination which holds sway over Castlo Garden. Tho runner who solicit sbonrdcrs for tho Ruth saw them and persuaded them to go to Ids houso, agreeing to obtain thorn tickets for Omaha outside tho Garden considerably less less than asked for by tho pool. The man agreed, and, after paying Barney Biglin's ex press agent 00 cents to take threo bundles to the hotel, they loft the Garden in company with the runner. Tho following day the runner took the Arabs to tho office of tho Old Dominion Railroad, on Bawling Green, and obtained their tickets to Omaha for $23.75 each. The rate charged by the pool in tho Garden is $2G, a saving to the immigrants of 82.25. This obtaining of tickets by runners or agencies not within the pool is objected to by tho Commissioners. Tho runner, of course, re ceives a commission from the compnny, but notwithstanding that in many cases it is a doclded saving to tho immigrants tho Com missioners deem it a pernicious practice. All tho power of thoir machine-aided Agent Doano, ib brought to bear to make an ex amplo of any one daring to purchase a ticket for an immigrant onywhero but at Castle Garden. "When tho two Arabs returned to tho Garden, preparatory to going West, an old missionary in the Garden, who makes a prac tice of booking all the Arabians who come to this country, got them to complain to tho Commissioners about the runner of the Ruth booking them on " outside " agencies. Ho also alleged that the runner represented that ho was from a hotel with which he had no connection. Tho Arabs had no complaint to make about their treatment. Thoy wero not ill-treated or defrauded out of any money, but wore treated in a kind and humane manner. On this complaint tho runner was banished from the Garden, for booking passengers on outside agencies. The Commissioners wero not contented with this punishment, but took away the boarding-house license -from Mrs. Gasscr, for on act of indiscretion on the part of hor representative, for which, proba. bly, sho was not accountable. Binco then tho woman has tried to havo her privileges restored, but tho vindictive Commissioners remained obstinate and refused to listen to her appeal. At last, seeing that no redress could bo gained from the Commissioners, she to-day appealed to an Etenino World reporter to givo ventilation to tbo manner in which Bho is being persecuted, which sho considers is a gross outrage. "For over thirty-five years," she said, " tho Hotel Ruth has been doing business in Castle Garden. My father, who is now dead, formerly was the proprietor. Ho always en. dcavored to act Justly with all immigrants who came to our houso, and it is my aim to follow In his footsteps. We havo never been ac cused of acting unjustly to any person, nnd I do not think the Commissioners of Emigra tion ever recoived a word of complaint from any immigrant, who has como to our houBO. Hince our expulsion my business has fallen away to almost nothing, and unless tho Com missioners relent i am at a loss to know what I shall do. I desire no sympathy, but only that my caso be treated in a fair and impatial manner." Armed with the poor woman's story of her treatment, Tnc Evbhxnq Would reporter called upon Commissioner Hauselt, whoso sympathies aro always with tho poor and op. pressed, and asked him why tho woman's license was taken away. Ho said: "Some of tho Commissioners deem it a crime for a rnnnor of a boarding-houso to book immi grants on agencies outside of Castlo Garden. This man has been aocusod of this, and in consequence has been denied admission to the Gordon. This is, as far as I know the only complaint made against tho man.

Trying- to Get Hold of the Itest of InolTrnslve Peru. The steamer City of Fuoblo, just in from Panama, has landed a small army of South nnd Central Americans in New York. Mr. M. O'Dwyer, of Rio Cuarto, in tho Argentino Republlo, comes from a country about which tho average New Yorker knows little, but in which, if ho ' only knew it, ho has a deep interest. Large quantities of fluid extract of beef are shipped hero by Mr. O'Dwyer's neighbors on the pampas, or great plains, which stretch towards tho Cordilleras from tho wonderful city of Buenos Ayres. Texans ship their beef frosh-killed, and the South American cowboys and ranch ers, who have Rio Ouarto for their headquar ters, hope somo day to compete in that way in tho metropolitan meat markets of the world. But just now they can only export the concentrated extract, hoofs, horns, hides nnd tallow of the countless herds on their great ranges. Rio Cuarto is 200 miles from Buenos Ayres, the capital and seaport. The peoplo thero tako a lively interest in tho peril of thoir neighbors, tho Peruvians, at the hands of the Chilians. The think it natural for Peru's cause to find friends in New York. Chili, they say, is undoubtedly trying to absorb Peru, having already gotten a big slioo off hor southern territory and all of Bolivia's coast-line. But the Argentine Republicans don't think the rest of the civilized world is going to acquicsco in Chili's grab-gamo.
